Who the fuck writes a text spamming bot in 2013 and then has a fixed size text buffer???
Yes, that is exactly it. If we ignore the technicality that no life ever touched another planetary body on purpose, you'd be spot on. Spacesuits and shit be damned, let's mangle reality to fit our agenda. Go, go gadget tinfoil hat - DEPLOY!
The problem is not the rich spending their money trying to influence policy, that is to be expected, similar to how we expect a prisoner to attempt escape if left unguarded. Human nature and all that bullshit. The problem is that it is possible to spend money to influence policy. Politicians who were not so easily bribed would secure an equal voice for any citizen, no matter their luck/skill in other things.
Well, if I'm the driver in the adjacent car I'd make very sure that your brand new Ford has a shiny new scratch on its side. I'll take my keys out of I have to.
How would they know that if they don't have enough spying powers to know that?
Locks don't make secure doors, doors do. If you wish to enter, the type of lock on the door is not going to deter you. Electronic locks are not more or less secure, it is just a different set of crooks that are able to get through them without leaving traces.
Played around with it a bit, seems to be straight to the point of "what can we do with text editing". Awesome
Yeah, I'm contemplating just outright blocking Roblimo. That seems like it would take care of most of the obnoxious posts with videos and nobodies.
Dane Atkinson is who again? Maybe I don't work with stuff that's enterprisey enough to have heard of any of the websites (note that all of his ventures seem to be identified by URLs, not you know, company names) - and I can't imagine why you would need to name drop a cyberpunk writer for added credibility (on an IT site? c'mon guys!)
Another funny thing. Googling his name instead of relying on the source brings up a thin BusinessWeek profile. Googling Squarespace, show the site to have a title "Build a website", following the link with NoScript turned on returns a logo centered in the browser, that's it. What the fuck dude? The link said you'd help me build a website.
There is only so much you can innovate a text editor, after that it just boils down to shuffling buttons and menus around.
Really now? That sounds eerily familiar, like something once said about 640k's worth of system memory! I think the last decades have shown us, contrary to your stated belief, that innovation in software happens in directions we can't quite predict. In fact, it's a recurring thing here on
Oh, and office applications are much, much more than text editors. LibreOffice, MS Office and the likes are all bundles of neat and not so neat software, surprise surprise - for the office.
The state has no use for money if you think about it a bit longer. The reason the state has to take money as payment for tax, is to pay wages to other people performing work for the state. You could cut out the money middleman and take labor as payment directly.
Instead of paying a set percentage of your wages as tax, you could be required to clock a certain amount of hours in your field of expertise for the community. Of course, that would mean that the rich fat cats get off their arse and work (since fleecing people isn't a workable skill in that system), so in that sense it is a doomed idea. It illustrates an alternative nonetheless, and requires a change of mindset about how we work together.
Disagree. People still take miraculous claims at face value, entire TV networks exist to take advantage of this. Marketing is not going to collapse from lack of faith in it, because faith is not a factor. These people prey on the human subconcious, they seed desire and then fill that desire, regardless of actual need (and with much waste of resources involved). That would also be why advertising begets disgust, they're telling bald faced lies.
This particular troll however is not really a prime example of good marketing. First of all, I doubt he is a marketing drone at all; it's too obvious a troll, and the audience is wrong, the post is off topic and he fails to provide a call to action. No, this is a sad troll with no life, trying to masturbate his way out of boredom by stirring the pot on
Does not bode well for our collective survival, if that is a picture of what a "next generation" of anything, looks like.
No, because the due process, in this case, only applies to American citizens. The rest of us get fuck-shafted by whichever email provider we have. To you American types, the recent string of lawsuits over this is good, to the rest of us, it's very bad. It focuses on the rights of you, over the rights of us.
The OP was about switching between US providers, and I guess I should have been clearer that this is only going to work for people, whom the various amendments apply to. All in all, we don't need to figure out which amendment this violates the most, or how many people can be tapped at once to deem it "mass", we need it to stop, period.
Yadda, yadda American news site and all, but this thing really does stretch beyond US soil. And no matter which government is doing the spying, it needs to just.fucking.stop.
I can't imagine why the businesses who have been caught red handed on this aren't being more vocal about the implications for their overseas trade, after all, governments love export more than import.
Right, because handing over your data after loosing a court battle is so much better than doing it before. You're focusing on the wrong part of the problem.
